Eight Things You Could Be Doing to Protect Your Clients’ Data
A common misperception is that data thieves are shady hackers striving to access data from distant locations. Some security threats fall into this category, but often theft involving companies happens closer to home—sometimes within your office.
Below is a list of tips for protecting your firm's most valuable assets (your reputation and your clients' trust) from both internal and external threats. Take the time to read the details around these tips, and others, in our recent article “8 Things You Could Be Doing To Protect Your Clients’ Data”
Tip 1. Beware of impersonators using your clients' email accounts.
Tip 2. Consider background checks—not just for new hires.
Tip 3. Immediately cancel former employees' access.
Tip 4. Beware of phishing expeditions: One of the most dangerous security threats both you and your clients face is the phishing attack.
Tip 5. Create security policies that apply to visitors, too.
